Climate Change and the New Polar Aesthetics – Artists Reimagine the Arctic and Antarctic
Lisa E. Bloom is the author of many feminist books and articles in art history, visual culture, and cultural studies. Her latest book, “Climate Change and the New Polar Aesthetics: Artists Reimagine the Arctic and Antarctic” (Duke University Press, 2022), that is the subject of her talk, examines aspects of feminist and environmentalist art that conjoins issues routinely kept apart in climate change debates such as the fate of indigenous communities, resurgent nationalisms, globalizing capitalism as well as questions of gender, race, and persistent postcolonial relations.
